We're hosting the next Nonprofits Who Code Meetup at Huge on the 20th. Hope to see you again! Panel moderated by Jeffrey Zeldman, leader in web design and web standards – featuring Jen Simmons (Mozilla), Jeffrey MacIntyre (Bucket), and Glenda Bautista-Baker (Hearst)! Whether you’re technically savvy, people-savvy, or both; whether your organization’s abundantly financed or you struggle to raise shoestring budgets; and whether you’re ready or not, over the next five years, massive change will be expected from every organization with a digital presence — including your nonprofit. Digital publications, social media channels, and corporate brands will offer new modes of AI-powered customization, new modes of input (such as voice), and new products that further blur the already smoky lines between the personal and the designed, the real world and the digital. Customers will expect the same level of sophistication and service from the nonprofit brands they care about. And they’ll find new brands to care about, if yours doesn’t measure up. But the future doesn’t have to be scary. In fact, it looks pretty exciting. Join technology experts and product designers who are leading the exploration for a look into our shared future.
Join us for an in-depth discussion with Nir Eyal, author of "Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products". Tickets are $15.00 USD (plus a Meetup.com transaction fee). No refunds. Sorry everyone. Attendees with tickets will receive a free copy of his book! Hooked is based on Mr. Eyal’s years of research, consulting, and practical experience. He wrote the book he wished had been available to him as a start-up founder—not abstract theory, but a how-to guide for building better products. Hooked is written for product managers, designers, marketers, start-up founders, and anyone who seeks to understand how products influence our behavior.

It is not enough to build a mesh of sensors or embedded devices to obtain more insights about the surrounding environment and optimize your production systems. Usually, your IoT solution needs to be capable of transferring enormous amounts of data to storage or the cloud where the data have to be processed further. Quite often, the processing of the endless streams of data has to be done in real-time so that you can react on the IoT subsystem's state accordingly. This session will cover building a Fast Data solution that will receive endless streams from the IoT side and will be capable of processing the streams in real-time using Apache Ignite's cluster resources. In particular, IoT NY members will learn about data streaming to an Apache Ignite cluster from embedded devices and real-time data processing with Apache Spark.
